You can purchase them at Harris citrus in Florida.  Whatever citrus types you purchase will have to be purchase within Florida.  It is illegal to bring citrus in from out of sate.  You can find Harris Citrus on the Internet.  Harriscitrus.com

ok thanks will check them out for sure.
think I emailed them some time ago. I know briteleaf does not have much of what i'm looking for now.
Yes i know its illegal to import citrus into FL the only thing i might try would be seeds.

Besides Pine Island do you know of anyone who sells grafted fruit trees and ships in FL.

chicomoralessxm, if you are in FL, you can find variegated: Pink Lemon, Centennial Kumquat and sometimes Minneola at Home Depot, Lowes and local nurseries. That's about it. All the other variegated citrus you can see in CA and some other states are not available in FL, unfortunately.
